Injector replacement delima

Well I am trying to make a decision on changing the injectors out. I am having a hard start problem but this is not where my decision making question is coming from. Recently someone here list a full set of reman injectors with gaskets and harness and I bought them for a deal. They bought them from international directly. I don't know is this is good or bad but since I got a screaming deal on them I am thinking about putting them in cuz I can. My truck has 192k on the clock and from what I am reading this is when they start needing replacement. I did do an injector buzz test and six sounded good and two were not as strong but still seemed fine. I know the starting is turning the engine at around 150 rpms. Cranking time to start is about six to eight seconds. So I am wondering if my injector/orings are the reason for the long crank....

So my question is simple...are international rebuilt injectors good quality and should I put them in due to my miles and the issue I am having?

not 100% sure on this hopefully someone else will chime in but aren't internationals injectors b-codes or are you able to order a-codes through them? I've just never heard of people getting injectors through international.

Not sure about International either. I am at 225k and I have replaced 4 already 1 was reman and I was having problems with it. Because the injector is not completly rebuildable. So only parts of it get fixed and the rest are old, who knows how many miles on them. I went with new from then out. I am now needing to replace the rest and am gonna go new on them.
